Banned Books Week

Here's some food for thought...

It always amazes me that people still try to ban books. Their attempts almost always fail - and they wind up giving free publicity to the very thing their trying to censor!

(Word to the wise: If you find a particular book offensive, "anti-family", or any of the other things mentioned in this video, shut up about it and maybe it will go away on it's own. You certainly don't have to read it, or let your own children read it, if you don't want to, but when you start messing around trying to tell other people's children what you can't read - well, then you just wind up with the entire country wondering what is it about this book that's so bad - and the next thing you know it's a bestseller. As this video proves, book banning is counter-productive.)
